I have to say that I actually disagree with this. It is possible that Fedora
Remixes could send the variant as being the name of their Remix. While my
Remix wouldn't do this (it is privacy oriented, and ensures only free
software), I can see the case for others.
Presumably groups that wanted these counts could let Fedora know the
varient name to expect for counting.
